My original copies of both Vs. and Vitalogy were purchased on their respective release dates back in the early '90s. Both cd's were scratched, rendering a couple of songs on each album unlistenable. I knew these releases were in the pipeline and have waited more than a year for this day to come. Opening this set today made me feel like I was back in junior high, getting both albums for the first time.
Vitalogy went into the cd player first because I had to hear "Last Exit" in remastered form. I listened to the first three songs and can say they sound amazing. Of course the original versions still sound great. But really, this is not much dough to drop for remastered versions of two of your favorite albums, right? Plus you get them in a spiffy package that will look great on your shelf.
Plus there is a live show included from Boston's Orpheum theatre in 1994. The cd is 75 minutes long. I'm listening to it right now and the band sounds so passionate and young. Ed sounds amazing. Also worth noting, the version of Immortality from this set has completely different lyrics from the album version.
This probably isn't an essential purchase if your original cd's are still in good shape and you aren't a huge audiophile. If you have the cash to drop and have a great stereo system, then I'd say go ahead and make the purchase.
Just about the only reason to buy a 90s remaster is to get the bonus tracks and extra artwork. Ten (Deluxe Edition) (2CD/1 DVD) from a couple of years ago was really good. It included much more artwork, bonus tracks, a concert DVD, and a remixed album. It is an essential purchase if you were a big fan of the band. Even though the fans argued about whether such a great album should need to be remastered I was in the camp that thought it was a great idea especially since it included both versions and let you pick which one you wanted to play rather then forcing one version or the other on you.
The Vs/Vitalogy reissue is no where near the step up that Ten was. Both reissues contained live concerts but the Ten concert was better because the live songs were more different then the studio versions due to the fact that they were unplugged versions of the songs as well as the fact that it had visuals being that it was a DVD.Read more ›
